In SOMM: Into the Bottle, the sequel to the celebrated documentary Somm, some of the world’s most famous winemakers and sommeliers unravel what makes wine a compelling elixir. SOMM: Into the Bottle brings viewers a rare and never before seen glimpse inside the private world of both famed and cult winemakers, such as Jean Louis Chave, Aubert de Villaine (Domaine Romanee-Conti), and Robert Mondavi. Viewers get to watch as some of the most storied bottles of wine are opened; in some cases less than a dozen are left in the world.
The history, the vintage, and the magic of these bottles are discussed by the best in the business. The film also tackles wine as it intersects with politics, pleasure, world war, natural disasters, religion, and the age old question, “Can a bottle be worth thousands of dollars or is it just great marketing?”
